When Grace heard it was 70’s week at camp she asked Julie and Ivy to help her find a fab outfit to go with this weeks groovy theme. These friends were booking it to get something together for Grace in time. Let’s take a look at what they came up with.
Fun Tie Dye
A little tie dye can go a long way to make your doll’s outfit or scene say 70’s! If you want to try your hand at tie dye, cool beans. Otherwise fabric with a tie dye print, like Grace‘s bag, is an option.
The peace sign has had a comeback but it was popular first in the 70’s. If you think is has to be complicated to dress 70’s then dream on! Grace has a simple peace sign necklace that I cut out of paper and taped to a piece of thin elastic chord.
Add a few braids or many! You can leave them plain but it will be far out if you add color!
To make a colorful braid, start with a small section of hair. Place a mini hairband at the top of the strand with a piece of ribbon or yarn. Divide the hair into two sections and the third section for braiding can be the piece of yarn or ribbon.
Braid the strand and finish it off with a hairband.
You decide if you want 3 or cover her head with braids!
Tie a strip of fabric on as a serious 70’s accent, the bandanna. Can you dig it? It will also double as a cover up, to cover the top of the braids.
Grace is ready for 70’s week, right on!
